Class 4A and 3A boys basketball rankings — Week 2

Since only a handful of games have been played so far, there aren’t many changes to the rankings this week. I expect to see some serious shuffling coming soon as teams really start to get into their schedules.

In 4A, Gonzaga Prep falls out this week after starting 0-2 — one loss coming against Rainier Beach, ranked No. 3 in the state in 3A.

From what I’ve been told, the Bullpups will be very good by the end of the season but, for now, Ferris (Spokane) climbs into the top 10.

I thought about dropping Federal Way out of the top 10 after the Eagles fell to Evergreen (Vancouver), 65-50, but in looking around the bubble teams, I decided to keep Federal Way in the rankings.

In 3A, Lincoln falls from No. 8 to No. 10 after a nine-point loss to Bellarmine Prep, ranked No. 6 in 4A.

It’s still way too early to get a good sense for how the season will unfold. However, we’ll get an early treat Tuesday when Rainier Beach travels to Seattle Prep, ranked No. 1 in 3A. I’ll be out there to cover the game.

It should be a fun one, and I hear a few of Seattle’s NBA products will be in the Seattle Prep gym for the game.

Here are this week’s Class 4A and 3A state basketball rankings:
